Car Of The Day: 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB ‘Vetroresina’

In 1975, Ferrari had Pininfarina restyle the 308 into what would become the real successor to the Dino 246, the 308 GTB Vetroresina. This car featured sweeping curves, two seats and a resemblance to the 512B. Highlighting the 308 GTB was a fiberglass, or vetroresina, body.

This new model not only introduced a groundbreaking production method for Scaglietti and Ferrari but also marked only the second V8-engined road model by the prestigious marque. The 308 GTB, mechanically-based on the 308 GT4, retained its predecessor’s framework and four-cam, 3.0-liter V8 engine, boasting 255bhp that propelled it to a top speed of 150 mph.

The Vetroresina models today represent the most coveted version of the iconic 308. With a significant weight reduction of around 80kg, these early examples fully unleash the dynamic chassis and spirited engine characteristics of the model.
